The Water Factory
1.0 Executive Summary
The Water Factory is a network marketing firm that sells Water Genie home water filtration systems. The Water Factory has chosen the network marketing business model as a way of creating a recurring revenue structure in a home business. Aych Tu-oh, the founder and owner has done significance amounts of research and has determined the filtered water market is a large, fast growing market. People are willing to pay up to five times the cost per gallon for water than they are for gasoline. The Water Factory's mission is to provide customers with the finest quality water filtration units. We exist to attract and maintain customers. When we adhere to this maxim, everything else will fall into place. Our services will exceed the expectations of our customers. By using the network marketing business model, Aych Tu-oh uses personal contacts as his target market. This is advantageous because a trust bond has been established already with these prospects, making it easier for Aych to turn the prospect into a lead. Additionally, network marketing creates recurring revenue streams through commissions that Aych earns for sales people he recruits. Aych also gets revenue for each sales person his sales people recruit. This revenue stream then turns his job into a business, a way to earn money even if he is not working. The single objective is to position The Water Factory as the premier resource for home water filtration needs. The marketing strategy will be to generate sales to customers as well as transition some of the customers into sales associates. The Water Factory will reach profitability by month 11 and have profits of $16,000 by year three.

2.1.5 Industry Analysis
Network marketing (NM), also known as multi-level marketing is a growing industry. The large names in the industry are Amway, Shaklee, and Herblife. Other well-known companies that participate in the space are AT&T, Proctor & Gamble, and Coca Cola. Several years ago NM was getting a bad rap because of its association with pyramid schemes. Pyramid schemes also use multi-levels in its business, however they did not have a viable product or service. They just had levels of people paying money to become a part of the pyramid with the promise that people would be paying them to become a lower part of the pyramid. In the NM market, personal care products and household products dominate. However, there are also other services and products that are sold including travel arrangements, insurance services, pet care supplies, phone service, etc.

2.2 SWOT Analysis
The following SWOT analysis captures the key strengths and weaknesses within the company, and describes the opportunities and threats facing The Water Factory.

2.2.1 Strengths
• A wide range of personal contacts. • Focused customer attention. • Quality products.

2.2.2 Weaknesses
• Limited by who you know. • Labor intensive to make initial sales. • Currently a limited product line.

2.2.3 Opportunities
• Multi-level business model that generates multiple revenue streams from associates. • Customers are typically personal contacts with trust bonds already formed.

Page 5

The Water Factory
2.2.4 Threats
• Already established network of marketing organizations. • A change in public perception regarding network marketing organizations.

2.3 Competition
There are several different sources of competition: • Other network marketing companies selling water filters. There are four to seven other NM firms that also sell water filtration units. Prices can be competitive. • Water filters sold through traditional retailers. There are approximately 10 different manufacturers of home filtration units. These units can be competitively priced, however, there is not the option to become a sales agent and get lower purchase prices for yourself as well as a future revenue stream. • Office style water dispenser (typically leased). There are several companies that will lease these large stand-alone water coolers. The equipment for this solution is more expensive, since you are leasing a refrigeration unit to cool the water, and the cost per gallon is also more expensive. • Bottled water: There are hundreds of companies that sell bottled water with the price ranging from $1-$5 a gallon, which is significantly more expensive. • Soft drinks: While this is not a direct substitute for water, people drink soft drinks when they are thirsty. Besides the many negative health issues surrounding soft drink consumption, it is as pricey as bottled water. Over the last five years the market for filtered water, typically in the form of bottled water, has exploded. Demand for filtered water has steadily grown and home water filtration units offer huge price advantages relative to bottled water alternatives.

2.4 Product Offering
The Water Factory sells Water Genie brand home water filtration system exclusively. Home water filters are used to improve the taste quality of the water, as well as to remove harmful impurities in the water. The Water Factory will sell three different models: 1. The Carafe: This model looks like a large water pitcher. When you fill up the pitcher the water passes through a filter, cleansing the water. When you pour the pitcher only the filtered water comes out. The price per gallon of water is 26 cents. The Faucet Mount: This model looks like a large bulb that mounts on the end of the water faucet. When you desire filtered water, you rotate the filter toward you and filtered water comes out of a small hole. When you want unfiltered water to pass through, you rotate the filter away from you and unfiltered water comes out of a large hole. The price per gallon of filtered water is 12 cents. The Counter Mount: This model is a 12 inch tall cylinder that resides on the counter, up to 14 inches away from the sink. There is a button near where the water exits the faucet that you push to allow filtered water to pass through. The price per gallon of filtered is six cents.

2.5 Keys to Success
The keys to success are: • Building trust relationships. • Professionalism. • Developing sufficient recurring revenue.

2.6 Critical Issues
The Water Factory is beginning its first year of operation. The critical issue that it faces is to generate enough multi-level business so revenues are earned even when Aych is not out actively searching to make sales. With insufficient multi-level business, Aych will struggle to earn enough money.

3.0 Marketing Strategy
The Water Factory's marketing strategy is based on leveraging personal contacts. Of these contacts, some will become customers, while others will be interested in joining the organization as a lower level of the network marketing structure. With this in mind, Aych will increase his participation in the many different community organizations. The more active he is in the different organizations, the more people he is exposed to who could become customers or sales people. The key to this marketing strategy is being an extrovert. Having the behavioral characteristic of an extrovert is necessary to be sufficiently assertive for developing sales.

3.1 Mission
The Water Factory's mission is to provide customers with the finest quality water filtration units. We exist to attract and maintain customers. When we adhere to this maxim, everything else will fall into place. Our services will exceed the expectations of our customers.

3.2 Marketing Objectives
• Generate a 10% increase of customers turned associates per year. • Increase customer referrals by 3% a quarter.

Page 7

The Water Factory
3.3 Financial Objectives
• A double digit growth rate for each successive year. • 65% of the revenue stream to come from recurring revenue (sales commissions from associates) by year three.

3.4 Target Markets
As a network marketing business, The Water Factory has an unusual market segment that it is targeting. With network marketing, sales and recruitment are done through personal contacts. This means that initially one would attempt to sell the product to people they know. Once these people are users, you would try to convert them from users to sales people for the products. This is also called multi-level marketing where a company sells products to consumers (typically personal contacts) via direct selling methods, and recruiting new people to help sell, and provides commissions for the managers of new recruits. The Water Factory will call the market segment that will be targeted "personal contacts." Personal contacts typically take the form of the following groups (not an exhaustive list): past classmates, current and past neighbors, landlords, tenants, repair people, grocers, club members, sport partners, children's teachers, children's playmate parents, spouse contacts and fellow congregation members. The Water Factory is focusing on this portion of the market because a trust relationship has already been developed between the personal contacts. Due to the nature of this business where you are selling directly to the consumer, it helps considerably to have a connection with the perspective customer. With a relationship already established, it is easier to sell the product because the prospective customers skepticism has been lowered. This then creates an opportunity when The Water Factory can explain the cost advantages of home water filters relative to bottled water. Additionally, the other reason this market is targeted is because once the prospect is a customer, it is then easier to convert them into a sales agent for The Water Factory. The advantage of having sales representatives is the extra income stream of sales commissions. The advantage to the customer becoming a sales representative is a lower cost for their own product and a revenue stream from the sales of filters to their friends. If their friends then become sales agents, the customer then gets a second level of revenue. Lastly, for every new recruit that Aych's recruits bring in, Aych gets a commission. So Aych would get a commission for his sales, a commission for the sales of his recruits, and if they recruit someone, Aych will get a commission off of them as well.

3.5 Positioning
The Water Factory will position itself as a cost effective, customer centric organization servicing the market need for purified water. The Water Factory will leverage its competitive edge to achieve the desired positioning. The Water Factory's competitive advantage is the ability to generate revenue streams for sellers of the products. This is the virtue of the network marketing system. With NM, if the buyer becomes a seller, they can receive their products at wholesale pricing and receive a commission for products that they sell. Additionally, if they recruit people to help them sell, they get a commission for every sale that their recruits make. At the same time Aych gets a commission of his recruits as well as his recruit's recruits. This is a relatively easy way to create a recurring revenue stream. This is The Water Factory's competitive advantage and will help them gain market share.

Page 8

The Water Factory
3.6 Strategies
The single objective is to position The Water Factory as the premier resource for home water filtration needs. The marketing strategy will be to generate sales to customers as well as the transition of some of the customers into sales associates. The marketing strategy will be accomplished through personal networking. As indicated before, sales are made to people that have some sort of relationship with Aych. The networking activities will be generated primarily from the many different community organizations that Aych belongs to. These include: The Rotary, Kiwanis, Church groups, and others. Aych will be an active member in these organizations and by leveraging his outgoing personality style, Aych will have a perfect lead in to request a time in which they could sit down and chat about the business proposition.

3.7 Marketing Mix
The Water Factory's marketing mix is comprised of the following approaches to pricing, distribution, advertising and promotion, and customer service. • Pricing: The pricing scheme is designed to greatly undercut the per gallon cost of purified water when compared to the price of bottled water. Additionally, the pricing will be competitive to the other home filtration systems currently on the market. • Distribution: Aych or (or his associates) will be responsible for the distribution of the product to the customer's home. • Advertising and Promotion: The marketing business model is based on networking. This will be done in the context of the many different community organizations that Aych is active in. • Customer Satisfaction: This element of the marketing mix will be attended to with the utmost in attention. One of the main premises of the business model is generating sales based on previously established trust relationships. Therefore, The Water Factory will ensure total customer satisfaction to safeguard future sales as well as the relationship.

3.8 Marketing Research
As part of Aych's senior thesis for the completion of his MBA, he studied the effectiveness of network marketing organizations. His research explored the financial models that NM employs as well as customer's preferences and perceptions regarding NM. Since the success of NM businesses are so dependant on the customers, research regarding the customers was very important. His thesis provided him with valuable insight as to why NM would be successful and what concerns people have that make them cautious about purchasing from a NM organization. Aych discovered that although some customers have the erroneous perception that NM is related to pyramid schemes, this perception is changing with the mainstream acceptance of Amway and other successful NM companies. Additionally, many customers were drawn to the NM business model because of the sense of more personalized attention. With this in mind, Aych will be emphasizing this aspect of his business.
